While decals asking motorists to call a number to report unsafe driving practices by commercial drivers have been around for a while, Automotive Resources International (ARI) is taking it a step further.

In addition to providing decals with a vehicle ID number and phone number for motorists to call and report unsafe driving, ARI is incorporating that data into its fleet management system ARI insights, through a program called ARI Driver Watch.

“The ARI insights system will integrate the client’s data from these phone calls with its full universe of data on accidents, violations, and other measurements of driver behavior,” said Frank Cardile, senior vp-operations & client relations.

“Fleet managers can target unacceptable driving behavior, which will lower driver risk, reduce accidents and violations, and increase driver productivity,” he added.

According to ARI, bringing that data into the web-based ARI insights will allow fleets to intervene quickly before unsafe truck driver behavior results in a more serious incident.
